Welcome to the Nursery blog

Assalamu alaikum,

Welcome from the Nursery team: Ustadah Maryam, Ustadah Saima, Ustadah Saiera

Nursery is all about developing the friendships, skills, behaviour and attitudes children will use for the rest of their lives to make them lifelong learners. They will enjoy a creative curriculum that encompasses the Prime and Specific areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). Children should mostly develop the 3 prime areas first. These prime areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning. As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas.

PRIME AREAS:
• Personal, Social and Emotional development
• Communication & Language
• Physical Development

SPECIFIC AREAS:
• Literacy
• Mathematics
• Understanding of the World
• Expressive Art & Design

We use these 7 areas to plan your child’s learning and activities suited to their interests and needs. Children learn through play and exploration, being active, and through creative and critical thinking. This learning takes place both indoors and outdoors as we use a free-flow system and children can choose whether they want to be indoors or outdoors.
